FAQ

The booth
1. How can I customize my Hush pod?
When ordering your Hush product, you can customize the color of the exterior carcass, interior upholstery, rear window, and central post. The hushPhone is the only exception — its central post cannot be customized because it doesn’t have one. Color options are listed on the last page of each product leaflet (available at hushoffice.com).
2. Can I move the pods around my office easily?
All Hush products are mobile by design. You can easily move each pod anywhere in the office without having to dismantle it. Only the hushMeet.L requires partial dismantling (disconnection of the modules) in some instances — because it is so large.

We recommend having trained installation personnel assist you in moving the pods.
3. Can I add a stool in a hushPhone post-order, if I order it without one?
Yes. Every hushPhone pod is designed so you can easily add a stool.
4. How much space does each pod take up?
The footprint for each Hush pod is specified in the installation manuals which are available upon request. To ensure sufficient ventilation, all products should have a ceiling clearance of 10 cm (3.8'') wherever placed. Detailed specs on the dimensions of each pod can be found in the product brochures.
5. Where should I place my Hush pod(s)?
Hush pods should be placed within proximity of people and their working areas, respective to their working needs. hushPhone should be placed within short walking distance of all employees who regularly take calls. hushWork and hushMeet should be placed strategically throughout the office space, within proximity of working areas.

To ensure sufficient ventilation, all products should have a ceiling clearance of 10 cm/3.8'' wherever placed.
6. How many pods do I need in my office?
Review your team’s typical activities and working dynamics to identify how many pods you need. The following occupancy estimates can help:
hushPhone: ~10 employees;
hushMeet/hushMeet.open: ~15 employees;
hushMeet.s/hushMeet.open.s: ~10 employees;
hushWork: ~10 employees;
hushMeet.L / ~40 employees;
Acoustic
1. How good is the sound insulation inside the Hush?
We do not publish the results of our acoustic tests because there is no accepted standard for acoustic pod products, and the results can, therefore, be easily misinterpreted. In addition, test results do not reflect the experience of silence in a Hush pod.

We seek to provide ideal acoustic conditions for the people inside Hush pods as well as those working outside, within proximity. Our goal is not absolute silence because total silence is unnatural and unhealthy. We also had to consider safety — anyone working in a Hush product can hear the sound of an alarm, for instance.

To describe the sound insulation simply, anyone using a Hush pod can hear only muffled sounds from the outside, while anyone outside of the pod is not able to hear conversations being held inside of the Hush pod.
Electric
1. Can I adjust ventilation and lighting?
Ventilation and lighting can be adjusted in the hushMeet/hushMeet.s, hushWork/hushWork sit&stand, and hushMeet.L products. Adjustment is done manually using independent knobs.

Neither ventilation nor lighting can be adjusted in the hushPhone.
